Stay Cool


As a kid my favorite day of school was always the last. All the work of the year was behind us and summer had it’s own promises of fun in the sun and some bad daytime TV. Us kids would sign off in each others yearbooks with clichés of advice to get through the summer before leveling up another grade. “Stay cool” was always my favorite. Short, sweet, and to the point.

Friends, I need a break. I want to celebrate the summer, soak up some sun, go on a Netflix binge or two, and focus on my family as we make a big transition into a new home. And I promise that when I come back, just like on the first day of school, I’ll do so with a badass outfit and lots of stories to tell.

So until then … stay cool.

    Enjoy your summer vacation! It’s almost a shame that teens and kids these days aren’t forced to watch terrible day-time television like we were. I do miss summers of sleeping in till 4pm and spending the whole day barefoot outside. those were the days.

    Cant wait for the stories. Enjoy slowing down.
